Jeremiah 7


1  The word1697 that834 came1961 to413 Jeremiah3414 from4480 854 the LORD,3068 saying,559

2  Stand5975 in the gate8179 of the LORD's3068 house,1004 and proclaim7121 there8033 853 this2088 word,1697 and say,559 Hear8085 the word1697 of the LORD,3068 all3605 ye of Judah,3063 that enter935 in at these428 gates8179 to worship7812 the LORD.3068

3  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel,3478 Amend3190 your ways1870 and your doings,4611 and I will cause you to dwell7931 in this2088 place.4725

4  Trust982 ye not408 in413 lying8267 words,1697 saying,559 The temple1964 of the LORD,3068 The temple1964 of the LORD,3068 The temple1964 of the LORD,3068 are these.1992

5  For3588 if518 ye throughly amend3190 3190 853 your ways1870 and your doings;4611 if518 ye throughly execute6213 6213 judgment4941 between996 a man376 and his neighbor;7453

6  If ye oppress6231 not3808 the stranger,1616 the fatherless,3490 and the widow,490 and shed8210 not408 innocent5355 blood1818 in this2088 place,4725 neither3808 walk1980 after310 other312 gods430 to your hurt:7451

7  Then will I cause you to dwell7931 in this2088 place,4725 in the land776 that834 I gave5414 to your fathers,1 forever4480 5769 and ever.5704 5769

8  Behold,2009 ye859 trust982 in5921 lying8267 words,1697 that cannot1115 profit.3276

9  Will ye steal,1589 murder,7523 and commit adultery,5003 and swear7650 falsely,8267 and burn incense6999 unto Baal,1168 and walk1980 after310 other312 gods430 whom834 ye know3045 not;3808

10  And come935 and stand5975 before6440 me in this2088 house,1004 which834 is called7121 by5921 my name,8034 and say,559 We are delivered to do5337 4616 6213 853 all3605 these428 abominations?8441

11  Is this2088 house,1004 which834 is called7121 by5921 my name,8034 become1961 a den4631 of robbers6530 in your eyes?5869 Behold,2009 even1571 I595 have seen7200 it, saith5002 the LORD.3068

12  But3588 go1980 ye now4994 unto413 my place4725 which834 was in Shiloh,7887 where834 I set7931 my name8034 at the first,7223 and see7200 853 what834 I did6213 to it for4480 6440 the wickedness7451 of my people5971 Israel.3478

13  And now,6528 because3282 ye have done6213 853 all3605 these428 works,4639 saith5002 the LORD,3068 and I spoke1696 unto413 you, rising up early7925 and speaking,1696 but ye heard8085 not;3808 and I called7121 you, but ye answered6030 not;3808

14  Therefore will I do6213 unto this house,1004 which834 is called7121 by5921 my name,8034 wherein834 ye859 trust,982 and unto the place4725 which834 I gave5414 to you and to your fathers,1 as834 I have done6213 to Shiloh.7887

15  And I will cast7993 you out of4480 5921 my sight,6440 as834 I have cast out7993 853 all3605 your brethren,251 853 even the whole3605 seed2233 of Ephraim.669

16  Therefore pray6419 not408 thou859 for1157 this2088 people,5971 neither408 lift up5375 cry7440 nor prayer8605 for1157 them, neither408 make intercession6293 to me: for3588 I will not369 hear8085 thee.

17  Seest7200 thou not369 what4100 they1992 do6213 in the cities5892 of Judah3063 and in the streets2351 of Jerusalem?3389

18  The children1121 gather3950 wood,6086 and the fathers1 kindle1197 853 the fire,784 and the women802 knead3888 their dough,1217 to make6213 cakes3561 to the queen4446 of heaven,8064 and to pour out5258 drink offerings5262 unto other312 gods,430 that4616 they may provoke me to anger.3707

19  Do they1992 provoke me to anger?3707 853 saith5002 the LORD:3068 do they not3808 provoke themselves to4616 the confusion1322 of their own faces?6440

20  Therefore3651 thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD;3069 Behold,2009 mine anger639 and my fury2534 shall be poured out5413 upon413 this2088 place,4725 upon5921 man,120 and upon5921 beast,929 and upon5921 the trees6086 of the field,7704 and upon5921 the fruit6529 of the ground;127 and it shall burn,1197 and shall not3808 be quenched.3518

21  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD3068 of hosts,6635 the God430 of Israel;3478 Put5595 your burnt offerings5930 unto5921 your sacrifices,2077 and eat398 flesh.1320

22  For3588 I spoke1696 not3808 unto 853 your fathers,1 nor3808 commanded6680 them in the day3117 that I brought3318 them out of the land4480 776 of Egypt,4714 concerning5921 1697 burnt offerings5930 or sacrifices:2077

23  But3588 518 853 this2088 thing1697 commanded6680 I them, saying,559 Obey8085 my voice,6963 and I will be1961 your God,430 and ye859 shall be1961 my people:5971 and walk1980 ye in all3605 the ways1870 that834 I have commanded6680 you, that4616 it may be well3190 unto you.

24  But they hearkened8085 not,3808 nor3808 inclined5186 853 their ear,241 but walked1980 in the counsels4156 and in the imagination8307 of their evil7451 heart,3820 and went1961 backward,268 and not3808 forward.6440

25  Since4480 the day3117 that834 your fathers1 came forth3318 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt4714 unto5704 this2088 day3117 I have even sent7971 unto413 you 853 all3605 my servants5650 the prophets,5030 daily3117 rising up early7925 and sending7971 them:

26  Yet they hearkened8085 not3808 unto413 me, nor3808 inclined5186 853 their ear,241 but hardened7185 853 their neck:6203 they did worse7489 than their fathers.4480 1

27  Therefore thou shalt speak1696 853 all3605 these428 words1697 unto413 them; but they will not3808 hearken8085 to413 thee: thou shalt also call7121 unto413 them; but they will not3808 answer6030 thee.

28  But thou shalt say559 unto413 them, This2088 is a nation1471 that834 obeyeth8085 not3808 the voice6963 of the LORD3068 their God,430 nor3808 receiveth3947 correction:4148 truth530 is perished,6 and is cut off3772 from their mouth.4480 6310

29  Cut off1494 thine hair,5145 O Jerusalem, and cast it away,7993 and take up5375 a lamentation7015 on5921 high places;8205 for3588 the LORD3068 hath rejected3988 and forsaken5203 853 the generation1755 of his wrath.5678

30  For3588 the children1121 of Judah3063 have done6213 evil7451 in my sight,5869 saith5002 the LORD:3068 they have set7760 their abominations8251 in the house1004 which834 is called7121 by5921 my name,8034 to pollute2930 it.

31  And they have built1129 the high places1116 of Tophet,8612 which834 is in the valley1516 of the son1121 of Hinnom,2011 to burn8313 853 their sons1121 and their daughters1323 in the fire;784 which834 I commanded6680 them not,3808 neither3808 came5927 it into5921 my heart.3820

32  Therefore,3651 behold,2009 the days3117 come,935 saith5002 the LORD,3068 that it shall no3808 more5750 be called559 Tophet,8612 nor the valley1516 of the son1121 of Hinnom,2011 but3588 518 the valley1516 of slaughter:2028 for they shall bury6912 in Tophet,8612 till there be no4480 369 place.4725

33  And the carcasses5038 of this2088 people5971 shall be1961 meat3978 for the fowls5775 of the heaven,8064 and for the beasts929 of the earth;776 and none369 shall frighten them away.2729

34  Then will I cause to cease7673 from the cities4480 5892 of Judah,3063 and from the streets4480 2351 of Jerusalem,3389 the voice6963 of mirth,8342 and the voice6963 of gladness,8057 the voice6963 of the bridegroom,2860 and the voice6963 of the bride:3618 for3588 the land776 shall be1961 desolate.2723


2 ἀκούσατε λόγον κυρίου πᾶσα ἡ Ιουδαία

3 τάδε λέγει κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ διορθώσατε τὰς ὁδοὺς ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ ἐπιτηδεύματα ὑμῶν καὶ κατοικιῶ ὑμᾶς ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ

4 μὴ πεποίθατε ἐφ᾽ ἑαυτοῖς ἐπὶ λόγοις ψευδέσιν ὅτι τὸ παράπαν οὐκ ὠφελήσουσιν ὑμᾶς λέγοντες ναὸς κυρίου ναὸς κυρίου ἐστίν

5 ὅτι ἐὰν διορθοῦντες διορθώσητε τὰς ὁδοὺς ὑμῶν καὶ τὰ ἐπιτηδεύματα ὑμῶν καὶ ποιοῦντες ποιήσητε κρίσιν ἀνὰ μέσον ἀνδρὸς καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ

6 καὶ προσήλυτον καὶ ὀρφανὸν καὶ χήραν μὴ καταδυναστεύσητε καὶ αἷμα ἀθῷον μὴ ἐκχέητε ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ καὶ ὀπίσω θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων μὴ πορεύησθε εἰς κακὸν ὑμῖν

7 καὶ κατοικιῶ ὑμᾶς ἐν τῷ τόπῳ τούτῳ ἐν γῇ ᾗ ἔδωκα τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν ἐξ αἰῶνος καὶ ἕως αἰῶνος

8 εἰ δὲ ὑμεῖς πεποίθατε ἐπὶ λόγοις ψευδέσιν ὅθεν οὐκ ὠφεληθήσεσθε

9 καὶ φονεύετε καὶ μοιχᾶσθε καὶ κλέπτετε καὶ ὀμνύετε ἐπ᾽ ἀδίκῳ καὶ ἐθυμιᾶτε τῇ Βααλ καὶ ἐπορεύεσθε ὀπίσω θεῶν ἀλλοτρίων ὧν οὐκ οἴδατε τοῦ κακῶς εἶναι ὑμῖν

10 καὶ ἤλθετε καὶ ἔστητε ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ οὗ ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ καὶ εἴπατε ἀπεσχήμεθα τοῦ μὴ ποιεῖν πάντα τὰ βδελύγματα ταῦτα

11 μὴ σπήλαιον λῃστῶν ὁ οἶκός μου οὗ ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ ἐκεῖ ἐνώπιον ὑμῶν καὶ ἐγὼ ἰδοὺ ἑώρακα λέγει κύριος

12 ὅτι πορεύθητε εἰς τὸν τόπον μου τὸν ἐν Σηλωμ οὗ κατεσκήνωσα τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐκεῖ ἔμπροσθεν καὶ ἴδετε ἃ ἐποίησα αὐτῷ ἀπὸ προσώπου κακίας λαοῦ μου Ισραηλ

13 καὶ νῦν ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ἐποιήσατε πάντα τὰ ἔργα ταῦτα καὶ ἐλάλησα πρὸς ὑμᾶς καὶ οὐκ ἠκούσατέ μου καὶ ἐκάλεσα ὑμᾶς καὶ οὐκ ἀπεκρίθητε

14 καὶ ποιήσω τῷ οἴκῳ τούτῳ ᾧ ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ ἐφ᾽ ᾧ ὑμεῖς πεποίθατε ἐπ᾽ αὐτῷ καὶ τῷ τόπῳ ᾧ ἔδωκα ὑμῖν καὶ τοῖς πατράσιν ὑμῶν καθὼς ἐποίησα τῇ Σηλωμ

15 καὶ ἀπορρίψω ὑμᾶς ἀπὸ προσώπου μου καθὼς ἀπέρριψα τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς ὑμῶν πᾶν τὸ σπέρμα Εφραιμ

16 καὶ σὺ μὴ προσεύχου περὶ τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου καὶ μὴ ἀξίου τοῦ ἐλεηθῆναι αὐτοὺς καὶ μὴ εὔχου καὶ μὴ προσέλθῃς μοι περὶ αὐτῶν ὅτι οὐκ εἰσακούσομαι

17 ἦ οὐχ ὁρᾷς τί αὐτοὶ ποιοῦσιν ἐν ταῖς πόλεσιν Ιουδα καὶ ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς Ιερουσαλημ

18 οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτῶν συλλέγουσιν ξύλα καὶ οἱ πατέρες αὐτῶν καίουσι πῦρ καὶ αἱ γυναῖκες αὐτῶν τρίβουσιν σταῖς τοῦ ποιῆσαι χαυῶνας τῇ στρατιᾷ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ ἔσπεισαν σπονδὰς θεοῖς ἀλλοτρίοις ἵνα παροργίσωσίν με

19 μὴ ἐμὲ αὐτοὶ παροργίζουσιν λέγει κύριος οὐχὶ ἑαυτούς ὅπως καταισχυνθῇ τὰ πρόσωπα αὐτῶν

20 διὰ τοῦτο τάδε λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ ὀργὴ καὶ θυμός μου χεῖται ἐπὶ τὸν τόπον τοῦτον καὶ ἐπὶ τοὺς ἀνθρώπους καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ κτήνη καὶ ἐπὶ πᾶν ξύλον τοῦ ἀγροῦ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐπὶ πάντα τὰ γενήματα τῆς γῆς καὶ καυθήσεται καὶ οὐ σβεσθήσεται

21 τάδε λέγει κύριος τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα ὑμῶν συναγάγετε μετὰ τῶν θυσιῶν ὑμῶν καὶ φάγετε κρέα

22 ὅτι οὐκ ἐλάλησα πρὸς τοὺς πατέρας ὑμῶν καὶ οὐκ ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς ἐν ἡμέρᾳ ᾗ ἀνήγαγον αὐτοὺς ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου περὶ ὁλοκαυτωμάτων καὶ θυσίας

23 ἀλλ᾽ ἢ τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς λέγων ἀκούσατε τῆς φωνῆς μου καὶ ἔσομαι ὑμῖν εἰς θεόν καὶ ὑμεῖς ἔσεσθέ μοι εἰς λαόν καὶ πορεύεσθε ἐν πάσαις ταῖς ὁδοῖς μου αἷς ἂν ἐντείλωμαι ὑμῖν ὅπως ἂν εὖ ᾖ ὑμῖν

24 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσάν μου καὶ οὐ προσέσχεν τὸ οὖς αὐτῶν ἀλλ᾽ ἐπορεύθησαν ἐν τοῖς ἐνθυμήμασιν τῆς καρδίας αὐτῶν τῆς κακῆς καὶ ἐγενήθησαν εἰς τὰ ὄπισθεν καὶ οὐκ εἰς τὰ ἔμπροσθεν

25 ἀφ᾽ ἧς ἡμέρας ἐξήλθοσαν οἱ πατέρες αὐτῶν ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης καὶ ἐξαπέστειλα πρὸς ὑμᾶς πάντας τοὺς δούλους μου τοὺς προφήτας ἡμέρας καὶ ὄρθρου καὶ ἀπέστειλα

26 καὶ οὐκ ἤκουσάν μου καὶ οὐ προσέσχεν τὸ οὖς αὐτῶν καὶ ἐσκλήρυναν τὸν τράχηλον αὐτῶν ὑπὲρ τοὺς πατέρας αὐτῶν

27 καὶ ἐρεῖς αὐτοῖς τὸν λόγον τοῦτον τοῦτο τὸ ἔθνος ὃ οὐκ ἤκουσεν τῆς φωνῆς κυρίου οὐδὲ ἐδέξατο παιδείαν ἐξέλιπεν ἡ πίστις ἐκ στόματος αὐτῶν

29 κεῖραι τὴν κεφαλήν σου καὶ ἀπόρριπτε καὶ ἀνάλαβε ἐπὶ χειλέων θρῆνον ὅτι ἀπεδοκίμασεν κύριος καὶ ἀπώσατο τὴν γενεὰν τὴν ποιοῦσαν ταῦτα

30 ὅτι ἐποίησαν οἱ υἱοὶ Ιουδα τὸ πονηρὸν ἐναντίον ἐμοῦ λέγει κύριος ἔταξαν τὰ βδελύγματα αὐτῶν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ οὗ ἐπικέκληται τὸ ὄνομά μου ἐπ᾽ αὐτόν τοῦ μιᾶναι αὐτόν

31 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησαν τὸν βωμὸν τοῦ Ταφεθ ὅς ἐστιν ἐν φάραγγι υἱοῦ Εννομ τοῦ κατακαίειν τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῶν ἐν πυρί ὃ οὐκ ἐνετειλάμην αὐτοῖς καὶ οὐ διενοήθην ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ μου

32 διὰ τοῦτο ἰδοὺ ἡμέραι ἔρχονται λέγει κύριος καὶ οὐκ ἐροῦσιν ἔτι βωμὸς τοῦ Ταφεθ καὶ φάραγξ υἱοῦ Εννομ ἀλλ᾽ ἢ φάραγξ τῶν ἀνῃρημένων καὶ θάψουσιν ἐν τῷ Ταφεθ διὰ τὸ μὴ ὑπάρχειν τόπον

33 καὶ ἔσονται οἱ νεκροὶ τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου εἰς βρῶσιν τοῖς πετεινοῖς τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ τοῖς θηρίοις τῆς γῆς καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ ἀποσοβῶν

34 καὶ καταλύσω ἐκ πόλεων Ιουδα καὶ ἐκ διόδων Ιερουσαλημ φωνὴν εὐφραινομένων καὶ φωνὴν χαιρόντων φωνὴν νυμφίου καὶ φωνὴν νύμφης ὅτι εἰς ἐρήμωσιν ἔσται πᾶσα ἡ γῆ

1 Verbum quod factum est ad Jeremiam a Domino, dicens:

2 Sta in porta domus Domini, et prædica ibi verbum istud, et dic: [Audite verbum Domini, omnis Juda,
qui ingredimini per portas has ut adoretis Dominum.

3 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël:
Bonas facite vias vestras, et studia vestra,
et habitabo vobiscum in loco isto.

4 Nolite confidere in verbis mendacii, dicentes:
Templum Domini, templum Domini, templum Domini est!

5 Quoniam si bene direxeritis vias vestras, et studia vestra;
si feceritis judicium inter virum et proximum ejus;

6 advenæ, et pupillo, et viduæ non feceritis calumniam,
nec sanguinem innocentem effuderitis in loco hoc,
et post deos alienos non ambulaveritis in malum vobismetipsis:

7 habitabo vobiscum in loco isto,
in terra quam dedi patribus vestris a sæculo et usque in sæculum.

8 Ecce vos confiditis vobis in sermonibus mendacii,
qui non proderunt vobis:

9 furari, occidere, adulterari,
jurare mendaciter, libare Baalim,
et ire post deos alienos quos ignoratis:

10 et venistis, et stetistis coram me
in domo hac, in qua invocatum est nomen meum,
et dixistis: Liberati sumus,
eo quod fecerimus omnes abominationes istas.

11 Numquid ergo spelunca latronum facta est domus ista,
in qua invocatum est nomen meum in oculis vestris?
Ego, ego sum: ego vidi, dicit Dominus.

12 Ite ad locum meum in Silo,
ubi habitavit nomen meum a principio,
et videte quæ fecerim ei propter malitiam populi mei Israël.

13 Et nunc, quia fecistis omnia opera hæc, dicit Dominus,
et locutus sum ad vos mane consurgens, et loquens, et non audistis:
et vocavi vos, et non respondistis:

14 faciam domui huic, in qua invocatum est nomen meum,
et in qua vos habetis fiduciam,
et loco quem dedi vobis et patribus vestris,
sicut feci Silo:

15 et projiciam vos a facie mea
sicut projeci omnes fratres vestros,
universum semen Ephraim.

16 Tu ergo, noli orare pro populo hoc,
nec assumas pro eis laudem et orationem:
et non obsistas mihi,
quia non exaudiam te.

17 Nonne vides quid isti faciunt in civitatibus Juda,
et in plateis Jerusalem?

18 Filii colligunt ligna,
et patres succendunt ignem,
et mulieres conspergunt adipem,
ut faciant placentas reginæ cæli,
et libent diis alienis,
et me ad iracundiam provocent.

19 Numquid me ad iracundiam provocant?
dicit Dominus;
nonne semetipsos in confusionem vultus sui?

20 Ideo hæc dicit Dominus Deus:
Ecce furor meus et indignatio mea conflatur super locum istum,
super viros, et super jumenta,
et super lignum regionis, et super fruges terræ:
et succendetur, et non extinguetur.

21 Hæc dicit Dominus exercituum, Deus Israël:
Holocautomata vestra addite victimis vestris,
et comedite carnes:

22 quia non sum locutus cum patribus vestris, et non præcepi eis,
in die qua eduxi eos de terra Ægypti,
de verbo holocautomatum et victimarum:

23 sed hoc verbum præcepi eis, dicens:
Audite vocem meam,
et ero vobis Deus,
et vos eritis mihi populus:
et ambulate in omni via quam mandavi vobis,
ut bene sit vobis.

24 Et non audierunt, nec inclinaverunt aurem suam:
sed abierunt in voluntatibus et in pravitate cordis sui mali:
factique sunt retrorsum, et non in ante,

25 a die qua egressi sunt patres eorum de terra Ægypti
usque ad diem hanc.
Et misi ad vos omnes servos meos prophetas per diem,
consurgens diluculo, et mittens:

26 et non audierunt me,
nec inclinaverunt aurem suam:
sed induraverunt cervicem suam,
et pejus operati sunt quam patres eorum.]

27 Et loqueris ad eos omnia verba hæc, et non audient te: et vocabis eos, et non respondebunt tibi.

28 Et dices ad eos: [Hæc est gens quæ non audivit vocem Domini Dei sui,
nec recepit disciplinam;
periit fides,
et ablata est de ore eorum.

29 Tonde capillum tuum, et projice,
et sume in directum planctum:
quia projecit Dominus et reliquit generationem furoris sui;

30 quia fecerunt filii Juda malum in oculis meis, dicit Dominus.
Posuerunt offendicula sua in domo
in qua invocatum est nomen meum, ut polluerent eam:

31 et ædificaverunt excelsa Topheth,
quæ est in valle filii Ennom,
ut incenderent filios suos et filias suas igni,
quæ non præcepi, nec cogitavi in corde meo.

32 Ideo ecce dies venient, dicit Dominus,
et non dicetur amplius Topheth, et vallis filii Ennom,
sed vallis interfectionis:
et sepelient in Topheth, eo quod non sit locus.

33 Et erit morticinum populi hujus in cibos volucribus cæli et bestiis terræ,
et non erit qui abigat.

34 Et quiescere faciam de urbibus Juda,
et de plateis Jerusalem,
vocem gaudii et vocem lætitiæ,
vocem sponsi et vocem sponsæ:
in desolationem enim erit terra.]
